The rich nature of Psiloritis is ideal for stock-breeding activities in the mountain¬ous areas while in the low lands there are cultivations of olive trees for olive oil, vineyards for wine, dry goods and fruits.
People that live in the root of the mountain grew up listening to ancient and modern myths with points of reference the ancient sacred caves such as Idaion Andron, Patsos and Melidoni caves, the holocausts and the sacrifices for freedom but also the simple, everyday habits and the local customs, sustained and enhanced by the modern way of life.
Psiloritis is the land that inspires the creation and search of values. It is the land that allows you to live ...as high as your dreams .http://www.psiloritis-natural-park.gr/Welcome/2/41.html
Nearly 20 hectares of land are waiting to welcome you, full of fruit trees from all over the world, herbs, medicinal and ornamental plants in a park different from others, where the land’s formation and the region’s microclimate make it a paradise for hundreds of plants and animals!
In the midst of this colorful and vivid landscape stands a burnt centennial olive tree, a memorial and a reference to the dismal fires of 2003, the park’s history and origin.
The newest and one of the most interesting sites of the Prefecture of Chania lies only 18 kilometers outside the city, on the feet of the White Mountains. It is ideal for visitors of all ages, combining enjoyments that only Crete can offer!http://www.botanical-park.com/
